Andreas Deja was born in Gdansk, Poland. When he was 10, he earned enough money to watch The Jungle Book playing in Dusseldorf. With the help of the German-English dictionary, he wrote to "Walt Disney Studios, America," inquiring how to become a Disney animator.
His talent was later discovered by Eric Larson, and he moved on working for Disney. Deja's first project was The Black Cauldron, where he animated Gurki.
